Art Impressions Challenge # 31 Back To School

All I could think of when I saw this weeks challenge, is the Staples commercial where they sing the back to school jingle.  Ha Ha, I truly do not miss getting the kiddies ready with all of their goodies, but the worst was the first night they came home with all the forms.  Forms, forms, forms, in triplicate!  That is when I thought of my AI, Sylvia stamp, 3 J-1550.  She is a frazzled mess, like most moms.

Here is a link to this fun challenge on the Art Impressions blog.  I used Pure Luxury card stock in Tanned Leather, Ripe Avocado, and Sweet Corn.  The designer paper is a digital, and cut some of the images out and made them raised.  Copic markers were used to color Sylvia, and Rusty Hinge Distress Ink was used around the edges.  My ribbon is from Michaels and the brad says Home Work in the shape of a copy book.  My sentiment is computer generated.

I have gone and done something painful to my right wrist, and this could not have come at a worse time.  So, inbetween using a wrist brace and lots of Advil, I try to get some little things done.  I miss posting daily, but it won't be long til I am back at it. I was a very productive weekend, and we were able to cross many wedding chores off the list. Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping around!

Sorry to hear about your wrist, but it sounds like you are moving right along. This is a great card, so much fun. Lucky for me, my DD school has automated everything so we fill everything out on the computer, yippee.
